The Creature

As I was strolling merrily along
singing my own little happy song
blissfully carefree, no trouble or strife
unaware, unprepared for the creature called life
it bends and shakes you, it knocks you about
it charms and breaks you, it packs a good clout
it warns and scorns you, it makes you decide
it calms and frustrates you, it warms you inside
it leaves you battered and broken covered in gore
but you drag yourself upright screaming for more
